Postmatic and the GDPR

As a Postmatic customer you may be wondering how using our products affects the GDPR compliance of your site. The quick answer is that Postmatic was built from the ground up to respect privacy and user data, so we’re already way ahead of most email-related services.

We’ve put together a guide to what you need to know about ensuring your site meets GDPR compliance guidelines in respect to both Postmatic and Replyable.

What’s GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a comprehensive data protection law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It replaced existing EU Data Protection law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It’s a single set of rules which governs the processing and monitoring of EU data.

Does it affect me?

Yes, most likely. If you hold or process the data of an any person in the EU, the GDPR will apply to you, whether you’re based in the EU or not. This is especially true if you use either Postmatic or Replyable.
